Counselling gives you an opportunity to talk in confidence, with a skilled practitioner who will help you explore any issue or decision which is necessary to improve quality of life. Issues may include bereavement, loss, stress, anxiety, carer issues, abuse, relationship difficulties, sexuality, work related situations, depression, eating distress, trauma or lack of self-confidence. I believe we all internalise emotions at times, if we can remind ourselves to talk about our feelings with a professional, the rewards may prove to be enormous, helping you to find your sense of self and discover the quality of life you deserve.

Wondering where to turn? As a relationally trained therapist, I am skilled in helping people to improve their self-esteem, to have more satisfying relationships with themselves and others and to find meaning in their lives.

Hello I'm Nicole, a humanistic integrative psychotherapist, trainer and supervisor with many years experience of working with individuaIs, organisations and groups. Twelve years ago I set up Peel Psychological Consultancy, a private counselling service and training centre in the hope that I'd be able to create a space in which the client felt, respected, accepted, supported and understood. It is my belief that relational trauma lies at the heart of most psychological distress therefore, whilst I adhere to theory and research, it is the therapeutic relationship between client and therapist that I find most important and effective.

I’m Izzy. I'm a queer, highly sensitive, Art Psychotherapist, Eco-Therapist and artist. My approach is nature-centered and invites you to you ‘feel into’ your body and environment; to go beyond the intellectual. That could look like deepening your relationship with the outdoors or embracing your animal, instinctual self. Or it could look like exploring plant-based and sustainable art materials. I'm currently opening slots for new clients to begin working with me in the new year. Or, you can join my workshops (see my website for details).

There are many reasons why you may be seeking out a therapist to help with the issues you face in your life. You may be experiencing distressing feelings; you may be approaching important crossroads in life and you’re faced with uncertainty; you may feel like your confidence or self-esteem is low. It may also be something more difficult to put your finger on – you may have an unnameable sense that something just isn’t right with your internal world and you want to make a change. You may be wondering what it is that I can do to help, so let's start there...

Attachment-based Counsellors

Is attachment-based therapy the same as attachment therapy?

Attachment-based therapy may be confused with what is called “attachment therapy” (sometimes called “holding therapy”), a discredited and dangerous approach to treating children with attachment disorders, autism, or other mental health concerns. Attachment therapy—not attachment-based therapy—may involve restraining a child, forcing eye contact, and other coercive or abusive techniques. None of these practices are used in attachment-based therapy and the two modalities are in no way related.

What should I expect from attachment-based therapy?

Attachment-based therapy is based on attachment theory, which posits that children’s early relationships with their caregivers strongly influence their ability to navigate the world later in life. Thus, adults who seek attachment-based therapy should expect to deeply explore their childhood, identifying the dynamics or experiences that disrupted their attachment and the steps necessary to overcome challenges that arose as a result. Parents and children should expect to explore the possible factors that disrupted the parent-child relationship and work toward restoring trust and connection.

How long does attachment-based therapy last?

Certain forms of attachment-based therapy, especially those designed for parents and children, last for a set number of sessions; for example, Attachment and Biobehavioural Catch-Up, a specific attachment-based approach for young children who have undergone early adversity, unfolds over 10 one-hour sessions. When attachment-based therapy is practiced on adults or combined with other modalities, it may not last a specific length of time; clients may wish to ask prospective therapists how long they expect treatment to take.

Does attachment-based therapy work?

Most of the research on attachment-based therapy focuses on children and adolescents. Some of this research shows a positive effect, especially for attachment-based family therapy (ABFT). Other studies, however, have found that attachment-based therapy is no more effective than other approaches to childhood depression, anxiety, or suicidality. Less is known about the therapy’s efficacy on adult populations.
